Port 'gam' to be held Saturday

NEWBURYPORT -- Drop by the Waterside community "gam" (a gathering for conversation on water or ashore) at the Firehouse and Market Landing Park tomorrow from 10 a.m. until noon.

Come share the good tidings and welcome Newburyport's eccentric 18th century merchant adventurer Lord Timothy Dexter home again. A believer in reincarnation who predicted that he "may come back toue see houe you all goue on" -- Dexter returns (in the form of Newburyport native Paul Jancewicz) to help celebrate this milestone year during Yankee Homecoming 2004.

The gam anticipates a "Once in a Blue Moon opportunity" that will occur in a "Motion of Comity" with Yankee Homecoming on July 31. Held at the waterfront's Market Landing Park after Yankee Homecoming's opening ceremonies at noon, the July 31 "Afternoon of the Blue Moon" event will precede the waterfront concert from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and the first Yankee Homecoming Lighted Boat Parade, which will begin at 8:30 p.m. -- just as the blue moon rises over the Merrimack River. A blue moon is the second full moon of the month, a rare occurance.

With plans in motion, Lord Tim has offered to "take the helm in love" and keep "the Ship on cors."

Both events are free. For more information, go to YankeeHomecoming.com and Comity.org
